In something of the spirit of a Broadway musical that just got 14 Tony award nominations comes the Beer'd Ride.
You know you've seen the billboards and street corner prophets championing the coming Rapture on May 21, 2011. In honor of such a momentous occasion, we thought tipping back a few frothy pints snuggled deep within the verdant Willamette Valley on a nice spring day would be a fitting vantage for us to watch the tide break over the world...or not.
Either way, we won't have wasted any time, so join us for the Beer'd Ride, Saturday May 21st to honor the beer and the beard, both of which seem to frame most true wisdom throughout the centuries. We will be meeting at Santiam Bicycle at 10am and riding from there, so bring your skinny tires.

Justin Much also reports that the new Buena Vista Ferry passed through Salem last Friday and that the reopening of the ferry appears to be running ahead of schedule.
